I do use chicken pellets on my veg patch from time to time - but again they are high in nitrogen and better for leafy veg. I feed my Swiss chard with it, and lettuce and that sort of thing.
At the beginning of the season I give my veg patch a good sprinkling of Fish, Blood & Bone - it's a balanced fertiliser which means it has balanced amounts of nutrients, rather than being high in just one thing.
There's a thread on it somewhere ......... I'll have a look
